How Marvel Ensure Civil War II And Han Solo Will Top DC's Rebirth In June

star-wars-2DC's decision to make the first three month's of their DC Rebirth titles starting in June is likely to see their marketshare increase dramatically for those months.

But Marvel look set to deny them the top spots for that month.

Marvel are launching exclusive retailer variant covers for both Civil War II #1 and Han Solo #1.

Where retailers order thousands of copies of a title, so that they can get an exclusive variant cover, for their store alone. It can work well for promotional purposes for the store and makes each a collector destination around the world for people trying to get a full set.

Even if they are returnable, Batman: Rebirth #1 and Batman #1 have no chance.
